Horizons is officially CLOSED. The board will remain accessible as an archive, but staff has moved on. If you're looking for a new Pokemon RP, try Lucky Strike or any number of others.
Welcome to Veria!
Pokémon Horizons is an expansive RP driven by member-planned plots and regular site events more than any singular site-wide plot, meaning there is always something to do and always room for new ideas.
From classic Pokémon staples to simple slice-of-life to grandiose encounters with Legendary Pokémon, there's a little something for everyone. We've been open since December 2015 and are always eager to welcome new friends~

Male / Hetero
Looking through the silver threads of hair long enough to cover his eyes, in the mirror, Raiores can usually see a teenager of average height, thinner than the norm, and slightly lighter. Silver eyes on a pale face, what appears to be a longer thread of hair from afar, a wire connecting his phone to his ears for him to enjoy his music. His hair is usually covered in a hoodie, warming his ears. He is usually in pants and shirts, covered by his black jacket.
Every 10 jokers you meet, there are a few you just want to kill. Depending on your taste, these "few" can be from 0 to 10. And depending on your taste, this boy may or may not belong to them, or even the jokers in general. But to Raiores, joking is life. As well as music, and lot of other stuff. He often sings in place of a reply when people talk to him. And he appreciates beauty that he finds in people, and the warmth it brings to his heart. In his view, kindness is the best trait one can have, and so he tries to be kind himself.
Raiores loves all humans by default. Willing enough to go out of his way to help one he doesn't even know is part of his life. And its not much different for animals and pokemon. Its hard for anyone to get on his bad side, and no one ever stayed there. He just doesn't want anyone there.
When someone does, when he's angry, however, he is like a whole different person. He doesn't get like that for his own pain, but when it is for his loved ones, whoever hurts them, he's the enemy. Forgiving as he is when it comes to himself, he will show little mercy to them. He won't try to show, or appear as if he plans on sparing them. Despite that, he doesn't care about such things as revenge. He believes what's gone is gone, which proves such ideas futile. His actions are out of anger, and, if for any purpose, for protection.
Once upon a time, there was a criminal organization under the name team rocket. A group of delinquents looking to fill their pockets, legally or not matter little as what harm would be caused off of it.
Giovanni has been killed at some point by an elite of the seem objecting on his way of leading, just to turn into a pokemon research center. Their researches and experiments have hurt countless pokemon and humans alike. Many criminals have found shelter as members of team rocket for long as it lasted.
The day it fell, out of recklessness, a member decided to leave a mark in kanto. Their researches were dangerous, their "mark" was strong enough to open a rift in ultra space. A perfect escape for the leader. Only him of course, it couldn't hold anymore.
He found himself in a whole new world, where he never was born, where he never killed Giovanni, where he never led team rocket his way. Over the coarse of a few years, he managed to start a new business. Another criminal organization. In spite of all that could have been of this world's team rocket, it was under the same name.
To the public, it was only a research lab somewhere in johto under another name. Most thought of it as completely legal. Some rumors have been heard on illegal researches they have conducted. It stayed as rumors, however.
But there was that one trainer, who couldn't stand the harm they cause. She knew what lies behind their h human, pokemon, and nature friendly experiments, she fought with all she had, bringing down even their elites. She eventually lost, however.
She was captured for about a year. Very little is known about what happened to her in that period. She claims to have given birth to a child that day, whom was taken from her as a member of team rocket.
His life in team rocket has never been a difficult one. He had food and shelter and fought for what he thought to be a good cause. He only knew about his father that he was the leader giving orders from behind the curtains.
Not even his name did he know, he has never known his own mother. He didn't know he had her second name, but that was his assumption as his mysterious boss wouldn't give his last name to the public Raiores hardly got to know anyone as a team rocket, but a mysterious person. He has been looking after Rai for long as team rocket stood. He even warned Rai to leave before he'd get arrested. He never was chased. It's been a few years and he still meets up with that guy every while.
Raiores hadn't spent a lot of time at the team's headquarters. He always has been busy with missions, each taking him a few days at least due to his habits of procrastination. Even though he had been a member since birth, he never felt like he had lost purpose. He was hurt to realize his whole life so for had been in vain, but managed to move on.
He has been offering all help he could, even to total strangers, trying to make up for the harm he has caused. He's been to various different places on his journey. What even was he travelling for anyway?
Raiores has always had that feeling, as if something was missing. It could pretty much be inside him, but that wasn't easy to find. His travels haven't always been easy either, but it was the easier choice for him.
It's been a few years since the fall of team rocket, Raiores is still on the run. He doesn't bother to hide his identity as a former member, and he very rarely faces trouble because of it. When he does, it's usually enough to run away as he's never bothered by that any time later for some reason.
Most of his memories of the past are hazy, he doesn't remember why he's travelled to Veria, but he never even asked himself. It's like that's what he does, perhaps he never had any reason~

Looks could be deceiving indeed, but not through his silver eyes, capable of seeing one's true colors. Raiores can see an aura even from great distances and/or through walls. He can also spot auras he's familiar with among large groups. His sight of auras may still have flaws, and Raiores is still training on it, in order to achieve mastery.
Aura Projection Not only can he see them, Rai can also manifest his aura in physical form, even if it's weak. It may not be used for offense, but it can be used to give the illusion of an attack. Raiores Stoll trains on it from time to another, he has been taught the basics when he used to be a team rocket, as he had natural skill for reading it, even if it was quite weak back then.
Not sure about face claim X.x
Raiores' eyes teared as well, tears of relief however, unlike his master. Relief found in the pride of his wise mentor. He looked up to him through these tears, and, in the voice shaky by what remained of fear in him, he spoke.
"Is there hope in me, sensei?"
Poor thing was terrified by the thought of having to live in the darkness named solitude again. The remains of fear in his heart would never leave him. Not until he heard goza's words.
"You're amazing, cool 70s afro boy!"
He wiped his tears with the courage sourcing from the words of sensei's wisdom and made a face serious as he could make it to return the look. What he could make of it at least.
"Yes, I got this!"
He was ready as ever now, and willing to undergo all he must. Practice, tests, or whatever else was in that counsellor's mind.
